The internet loves cats as they are super lovable animals that make great house pets. However, did you know that they can also be a perfect house decor? Of course, that is not to say you can treat them as objects; with your proper care and love, your cats will pose as the perfect house decor you never knew you needed. Here are some reasons why your cats are the best accessories to your homes:

Regardless of their breed or colour, they will definitely accent your home's furniture and decorations. Their fur is in beautiful neutral tones, so they blend in effortlessly with any furniture and will make your home look more warm and cosy.

2. They stay pretty still

Unlike dogs, cats are less active and they can sleep up to 20 hours in a day! Spruce up their resting space and watch them make the perfect addition to that corner of your house.

3. Burning the midnight oil will never be dull

Cats are actually more active during night time. There will be no more lonely and dreadful nights rushing to meet your deadlines. With your cats around, work might not seem so wreary after all. As the perfect companion, your work space will never be dull and empty anymore (it might be covered in cat hair though).


4. You'll never have meals alone

A healthy breakfast, hearty lunch or a romantic candlelight dinner with your cat will definitely be more than satisfying. Your cat will join you for a meal even when everybody else has bailed on you.

Cats clean themselves and are also extremely sanitary. Futhermore, cats naturally provide pest control services.

Cats are so adorable, they are the ultimate charmers. You might even appear to be more charismatic and alluring than you might actually be. Wait for everybody to swoon over your cat and go "awww!" when you carry them in your arms. Even though they might just love the cat more than you.


Seeing all these, are you tempted to get a cat for pet? We know we are!
